  • Need Midi-lathe chuck advice

    I have the Jet JWL-1014 14" Mini-lathe and am planning to get a little more involved in producing turned projects. I need a chuck and have been looking at two - the Nova midi chuck, and the Oneway Talon. Any ideas on which is better?? Features, construction, dependability,...?? Thanks!!

      There was an article in one of the WW'ing mags recently comparing chucks, but I can't remember which. It was in the past 4 months though.
      "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
      John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)
